P90X One on One Base and Back is disc 4 of Volume 3 and it’s brutal! This workout is an upper and lower body blaster – confusing the muscles of your quads, glutes, hams, calves, and upper body. Working all those large muscle groups makes this workout a challenge.
Tony starts out Base and Back with a brief warmup to get your blood going and prepare for the upcoming workout. Ouch! Then this P90X One on One workout starts with a bang! There are just 10 moves – doesn’t sound like much does it? Rinse and repeat for a total of 20 exercises.
Equipment: to get the most out of P90X One on One Base and Back, you’ll need a pullup bar. Resistance bands work well for many upper body back workouts, but not this one! With exercises like Spinning Chin Pulls and Wide Leg Close Grip Chin-ups, use the pullup bar. These exercise are not even practical to do with resistance bands.
The moves alternate between upper body and lower body exercises. You go from a V-Pullup to Spinning Fighter Squats and then Kippy Pulls. Even though you alternate, and Tony takes some long breaks, this workout is a mother.
Get ready to do some plyo work like Plyo Running Lunges. If you are not up for jumping, you’ll still get a lot out of Base and Back just by doing the moves without the jumps. Heck, I didn’t jump and I still had to tough it out.
This P90X One on One workout is a good one. Get it! You’ll love it.
